Firefight: The Ion Age. Deadly squad-level urban warfare.

Brought to you with the kind permission of Alternative Armies. Rules for this mod and a great range of metal figures can be bought from their website (look in the "28mm publications" part of the site) and the system has an amazingly deep lore to back it up.

This mod is based on Firefight 2.0, released in 2009 by Alternative Armies (not Firefight v1.0 that was released in 1991, though they are pretty similar). The mod is still a work in progress, but already covers most of the game - there are just a few character types missing really, which I will add in over time, along with a few small tweaks :)



Added Grid square definitions so moves etc now report properly

Fixed Restricted Access prototype, which was reversed


New artwork for most of the characters and more character types added for all factions

Various Infantry functionality added (Prone/Stand up, Stay Frosty and Turn Done)
